Smart shopping tips

  1. Think before you buy. Before you hand over your hard-earned money or a credit card, ask yourself these questions: Do I really need it? Will I use it? Will I regret this tomorrow? If you're really not sure, wait a day. If you still want it tomorrow, you can always go back and buy it. A big part of smart shopping is avoiding impulse spending.
  2. Make a list and stick to it. We've all done it: Run into the store for three things and come out with 20. So wherever you're going shopping, make a spending plan and know exactly what you're getting before you go.
  3. Don't grocery shop hungry! Studies have proven that when people go grocery shopping on an empty stomach, they buy more than when they're full. Smart shoppers eat before they go to the grocery store.
  4. Take advantage of sales and coupons. Did you know some smart shoppers never pay full price for anything? They clip and scan coupons, take advantage of special offers, check the paper and online for sales. But don't buy something just because it's on sale. Smart shopping means only buying what you need.
  5. Buy it used, when possible. Second hand stores and yard sales are a treasure trove of amazing deals. You can find quality clothes, books, video games, movies, small appliances, sporting goods, toys—almost anything you can think of!
  6. Use technology. Your smartphone can be your best discount shopping friend. You can use it to search for the best price at retailers. Get apps that will compare prices, download coupons and much more.
